|JNN088 Tavaa Praataa - Lhetargija|
This album was played well over a month ago on NTNS radio and stirred a great big vibe inside. Luckily Julia Mangore has obliged in Just not Normal providing for a more permanent home for this radical album. Experimental IDM I’d say, but her myspace page says it all: Psychical sonic, phonic, sometimes tonic experiments by Julia Mangore and OctobrineXIII, since 2009.

|JNN095 Sediments - Jazznoize|
From Spain, this multi experimentalist dares walk on the dark side of sounds as one would go shopping at the supermarket. His varried pallet of sounds has matured much since the establishement of Jazznoize in 2005. Sergio SÃ¡nches NicolÃ¡s uses field recordings transforming them a lot or at all, technicians of loop, audible errors, or the slow sounds like pure example of transformation of the means...

|JNN039 Harsh Mantra - Mystified - Mystahr (split)|

All this on a very well chosen theme to leave you with shivers after this intense listening experience.

|JNN022 Khate - Detritivore - Khate|
The color of the sky at 5:57 a.m.; the smell of a dormant furnace, revived; the feel of dusty boxes. Bells, blips, and boooooms. Precipitation is inspiration. Closets are emptied --- long-hidden treasure awaits. Circuit-bent instruments, analog synths, abused vinyl, and field recordings serve as the orchestra on this release. Best enjoyed on chilly nights in low lighting. 'This is the very first of Khate releases to be of free nature' We at JNN have been long time fans of her work, and are ever ...

|JNN097 Swing Mastication - Thanato Twist with Oleg's Sound System|
If the world of lo-fi IDM could find more oompf, this would be the place. A wealth of toys has been intergrated into these 10 tracks that will make your mind swirl and your body ache for more. Ofcourse it may just as well be possible that youâre not into such degraded toynoises. If that is the case, you certainly got lost and trapped in a world you neednât be in. Most likely you will thoroughly enjoy this recording of two giants in the world of experimental improvâed music: Ayato and Kortane ...

|JNN092 Art is a style of perception - Kris Cadwell|
Like Stream69, Kris Cadwell also revisits the JNN-catalog with a successor to his first album ‘Offerings’ (JNN070). Another beauty and indepth look into the sound of a visual artist exploring not in paint or color, but in tone. The diversity of this artist is remarkable; at times this feels very Boards of Canada when he can also change his cloth and create a beautiful deep field of drones and beatfree song...

|JNN098 Musings on human metamorphoses - Apocalyptic Frequency Experience|
And in the darkness lives the mysterious. Or in other words what happens when an experimental artist from Mexico (Roberto Telles Garcia) gets head to head with a French mistress of the experimental soundage (Murielle Gallon) and complete the quartet of brotherhoods with Kalavazombie on synth and programers and Simio Autodidacta for pics and art. Their assignment: Express in sound the musings on human metamorphoses...

What are you saying; you never heard of Khate before. What rock have you been living under? One of the finer mistresses of the world of experimental electronics resurfaces with a brand new album! After the longest absence from music making and as she claims âthe craziesâ this fine fine artist returns and boy are we in for a treat. From one of our back and forth emails: âBut!

|JNN119 Creak vs Beat - Mat U Stone|
Just not Normal goes Hip Hoppety! The artist also known as Ayato goes here under his Mat U Stone monniker and delivers something extraordinary. Some of these parts may be quite familiar where some of these beats and mad sounds will bust your moves. Now donât expect a dance floor stomper, but best be prepared to be blown away.
